what I got for my birthday

Well, first there was a cool new icon that will make keith5by5 very jealous, made for me by ubiquirk:

Then there was my present from strangexgirl, which made me squee like a little kid when I opened it:

Which will make jaded_jamie very jealous!

Then there was this:

Your fic(s) have been nominated for Round 6 of the Rogue Poet Awards (http://awards.rogue-poet.com/). This is a relatively small award site, predominantly Spike/Buffy, though we do have three "other" categories: Best Gen, Best Het, and Best Slash. Nominations for Round 6 run from July 1, 2008 - August 31, 2008. Winners will be announced on September 30, 2008."

It was "Buffybot's Secret", for best GenFic. Which counts, because it arrived on my birthday, and thanks so much to whoever provided that present!

And of course there was this gift, presented by my oldest daughter:

Can't really beat that one, can you? :-) Thanks so much for everyone who offered me the good wishes (not to mention the many yummy virtual snacks!)

::dies from the cuteness:: They're holding hands!!!!!!! Oh my...I'm tearing up. How precious!

You are very blessed, indeed.

I *know*, right?! :-) I forgot to mention, Charis took that picture; after the images she's been getting lately, I'm going to give up photography. :-)

Charis is very talented!

I know -- and almost no training! I worked my butt off to learn how to take good photographs, while she just walks in and starts shooting ... :-)

Um, that's a gift. You might not have it. ::ducks and runs::

Yeah, well, it's a good thing I can write. I go by the rule that if I take enough pictures, occasionally I'll get a good one. You can imagine how much that cost me iin the days of film!

Do you have your fics archived in one place? What pairings do you write?
Jul. 19th, 2008 10:57 am (UTC)
Well, I put all my fic up at my own LJ, of course, and in a similar place over at InsaneJournal. Probably the best place to read it in order is at fanfiction.net, where I first started out: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/687711/ozma914

They're a bit more updated at LJ, correcting a few typos and making very minor changes. I should have corrected them at ff.net at the time, but it's *such* a pain to edit there that I didn't do it; besides, they're really minor errors, mostly just annoying to me as the writer. If I had to give you advise on reading my stuff, I'd say to do it at gen_storyteller, where I'm posting them in chonological order; but I'm way behind there because RL keeps attacking me.

And almost all of them are in chronological order, because they're almost all set in my little post-Chosen universe!

Anyway, I don't write any pairings, really; I don't consider myself a shipper. For instance, Faith and Robin are together in my tales, as are Willow and Kennedy, but mostly just because they were at the end of the show; I don't really focus on their relationships. I did almost ship Tara with my Mary Sue watcher character once, but at the last minute I wisely chickened out. :-)

Congratulations on all of that! *phew!*

Nothing, and I mean nothing about Season 8 could make me jealous.

Congrat on the nom and good to see the kids bonding like that.

Re: Lol
Thanks! To me it's just good art -- the whole image is even better, regardless of where it originally came from.
Jul. 18th, 2008 08:30 am (UTC)
Those are some damn fine presents.
Jul. 18th, 2008 09:35 am (UTC)
Aren't they just, though? :-)
Jul. 18th, 2008 02:23 pm (UTC)
Belated Happy Birthday! :)

(Sorry for missing the day itself.)
Jul. 19th, 2008 06:13 am (UTC)
Thanks! And don't worry, we're all busy lately. :-)
Jul. 18th, 2008 07:57 pm (UTC)
That is really the most beautiful baby picture I've ever seen.

Congrats on the nomination.
Jul. 19th, 2008 06:12 am (UTC)
Isn't it, though? Charis took it; I'd say it was mom's instincts, if I didn't know about the many brilliant photographs she's already taken.

Oh, and thanks! The baby thing kind of overshadows the rest, doesn't it?

Congrats on the nom.

And that photo of the twins is amazing. Amazing, I tell ya!
Jul. 22nd, 2008 05:38 am (UTC)
Babies are always amazing -- twins twice as much! :-)
